The Dayton Flyers have received one commitment from the class of 2018. Recruiting continues for 2019. Work on the 2020 class is also underway.

Zeb Jackson, a 5-foot-9 sophomore point guard from Maumee Valley Country Day School in Toledo, took an unofficial visit to Dayton on Sunday, according to C2K Elite, an Under Armour-sponsored AAU program in Ohio.

According to VerbalCommits.com, Dayton has offered scholarships to two players in the class of 2020: Posh Alexander, a 6-2 guard from New York City; and Devontae Blanton, a 6-4 guard from Lakewood St. Edward.

It’s too early to say how many scholarships Dayton will have open in 2020. Based on the current roster, Trey Landers and Ryan Mikesell, who’s sitting out this season, will be the team’s seniors in the 2019-20 season.
